Peak Roofing & Constructions’ Roofing Contractor Explains What Causes Curling Shingles

If you have taken a glance up at your roof and noticed your shingles curling, you may be wondering how serious the issue is. The answer? Yeah, that isn’t a good sign. Curling shingles can be the consequence of several different problems that can be solved with a repair or complete roof replacement. In order to understand the repair process, we have to understand fully what causes shingle curling. Peak Roofing & Construction always wants our clients to have the best information possible so they can make informed decisions about their home. Here are a few reasons why shingles can curl.

Old Age

As shingles age, the material inside starts to degrade and weaken. This process starts on the outside edges of the shingle and creeps towards the center. With the outer edges weaker than the middle, they begin to curl. When age is a factor, you will notice there are multiple shingles curling all over your roof. You will want to consider a complete roof replacement in this instance.

Improper Installation

Unfortunately, a lot of roofers out there will attempt to pinch pennies by shortcutting the customer. Improper installation can cause the shingle to curl by not using enough nails or placing them improperly. If your roof is relatively new, you will want to call the company and complain about the installation. Hopefully, they will be willing to repair the damage. If not, contact our company for correct, long-lasting installation.

Inadequate Ventilation

If you read our blog on a regular basis, you will know that we really push the issue of ventilation. When your attic gets significantly hotter than the outside air, moisture begins forming. This combined with the heat causes shingle damage, including curling.
